F1 » Kubica unable to pick up a glass to drink - reports

Last August I awoke to find myself paralysed from the ribcage down.TB in the spine was my problem.As a lifelong F1 fan I often used to think about Robert as I lay in my bed.Then after months of physio I was starting to learn to walk again only to be told my spine was too weak to support me.So I find myself back in hospital having titanium rods put in my back.If the news of his setback is true please think before you post something flippant.Wish him well and hope for the best because when you are alone with something like this,at night just you in your bed.Thats the hardest time of all.Good luck my dear friend.

F1 » Horner denies Mercedes complaints are hypocritical

I believe absolutely that Dietrich Mateschitz is an F1 fan but Red Bull's involvement in F1 has always been commercial.I have no problem with that but threats to quit,so what?I have always had a concern with teams that come into F1 with the intention of boosting their sales alone.For me F1 is about teams who want to win F1 races as their main priority.Some of my favourite drivers and teams have never won a race let alone a championship. As a general rule a race team has always attracted a sponsor,with Red Bull a sponsor has built a race team.A damn good one at that.Yet it is a sponsors prerogative to spend its money as it chooses,a F1 teams raison d'etre is to race.So what is Red Bull?As a F1 team they have some way to go to earn a place in the fabric of F1.Minardi,they the perennial last man were a F1 team through and through,here to race. So Red Bull take your pram and take your toys and I won't cry a tear.What I will miss is a slick,winning F1 team that for 4yrs was the best on

F1 » Kubica unable to pick up a glass to drink - reports

Firstly I would like to thank all of you who offered their best wishes to me.Now I have read here that RK has been seen with an apparently strong arm and legs.My personal experience has taught me that with a good physio programme it is possible to regain all of your previous physical strength providing you have retained most of your mobility.The big problem however is one of propreception.The brains ability to correctly interpret the information it is recieving from the nerves and vice-versa.When your brain has to consciously analyse these signals it is so mentally draining that you literally have no energy left for anything else like driving a GP car.The good thing is that with time a recovery can be made.But there are never any guarentees.So don't right off a Kubica return just yet.As for Algersuari.Well I have no respect for him whatsoever.

Thanks Murray.A few years ago I stood at Abbey during one afternoon of the three day test.Alongside me was Mark Hughes GP correspondent of Autosport.I didn't know him.But lap after lap Kubica came through that left/right sequence on the absolute limit in that unwieldy BMW.I looked at Hughes and said 'that's why I love GP''Yes'he said 'that's why'.So to all of those who said at the time that RK should not have been driving a rally car just bear in mind he was doing what he loved.And while LH was being groomed by McClaren Robert was on his own aged 14 working in a go-carting team in Italy because is father could no longer fund him.Respect.

F1 » Ecclestone 'successor' quits F1

SISU an interesting question.For all of his faults Bernie with a business acumen sans pareil is also a fan.He has the ear of crown princes and governments.It was only his brinkmanship style that changed silverstone from a sh*hole to what it is today.I agree ideally you would want one man or woman!We've had Balestre,Mosley and Ecclestone all strong individuals.Chances are we will end up with someone appointed by CVC or other private equity group.What about Jonathan Palmer.Or me?

F1 » Kovalainen: We've got more to come

I don't really think we have yet seen any evidence of a move up the grid of any significance.Attrition once again representing Caterhams best chance of points,especially in Malaysia.They need reliability above all else.Heikki gives an advantage over Toro Rosso in experience at the moment and I expect him to lead the team.Petrov needs to show its not about the money its about the driving that got him he rive.
